Dear Friends & Customers of North Spoon Christmas Tree Farm,
As the Christmas season approaches, it is with bitter sweetness that we announce to you our family’s changes and consequently…adjustments to your Christmas traditions: NORTH SPOON CHRISTMAS TREE FARM in Lenoir City has closed.
We have a wonderful story to tell as the Lord made it abundantly clear it was our time to follow His lead to Cape Girardeau, MO and work for Young Life in Southeast Missouri. This past spring, we announced our new changes for Andy to become the YL Area Director in Cape and that our family, the Ogle family, would be relocating to Southeast Missouri. You can read that post HERE.
WHAT IS IN STORE FOR NORTH SPOON? We have several ideas: fundraising opportunities for Young Life, and Christmas celebrations for our neighborhoods or perhaps more Christmas Trees in the future for Cape Girardeau…but, for now, we are trusting the promptings of God and saying good bye to our Loudon County patrons and supporters as we close a wonderful chapter of Christmas Tree farming and hosting so many wonderful people!
We do not know the plans of the family who purchased our farm and cannot speak to their Christmas plans or tree farming story. Buttermilk Farms will continue to create memories for families choosing to cut down Christmas Trees in Thanksgiving weekend this upcoming season – once again there are not as many trees available but plans exist to keep traditions going just a bit longer as that inventory is still there.
We are grateful…we have such fond memories and will always treasure the fun and the future potential you provided us. Thanks be to the Father…We wish you happy searches for your Christmas Tree and your new Christmas traditions.
May the good news of Peace and Wonder ring this Christmas and, in our hearts, always…
Andy & Olivia Ogle
